Car 2.  EVANS/BARRITT

“It’s incredible. I put the wishbone (parts used for Ogier’s car) on right otherwise it would

have fallen off by now.”

 

Car 3.  SUNINEN/MARKKULA

“Driving through the stages I try to keep the pace a bit. I try to do as good a job as

possible. Fourth or fifth place would be okay.”

 

Car 4.  MIKKELSEN/JAEGER-SYNNEVAAG

Missed his original start time after working on the car after SS11. He started the stage

behind Henning Solberg and Jan Kopecký.

 

Car 6.  PADDON/MARSHALL

“It’s mayhem out here. It’s quite astonishing to see all the updates. We are going to keep

the same tactic and take it easy. We have a big gap behind.”

 

Car 7.  LATVALA/ANTTILA

“The pressure is fixed. I think it was the heat. The car is working really well. I thought I

drive carefully. The time was better than I thought.”

 

Car 8.   TÄNÄK/JARVEOJA

“I guess in this event you can imagine everything. We sacrificed this stage. Now we have

better tyres for the long one.

 

Car 11.  BREEN/MARTIN

The C3 caught fire after SS11 and has been completely destroyed. The crew are fine. Ott

Tänak used his fire extinguisher, but it was in vain.

 

Car 81.  SOLBERG/MINOR

“We’re sixth overall. Maybe we can make up one more place. One more stage today and I

really concentrate to keep the car on the road. I am very happy with the way it is going.”

 

Car 21.  AL-RAJHI/ORR

Stopped in SS11 and his car suffered fire damage.

 

Car 61.  BERGKVIST/BARTH

Stopped in SS11 and rerouted to SS12.

 

Car 65.  TANNERT/HEIGL

Stopped in SS11 and rerouted to SS12.

 

Car 72.  FERNANDEZ/RIQUELME

Stopped in SS11 and rerouted to SS12.

 

SS11 was stopped after Car 72 started the stage because of the fire involving car 21.
